P.E.N. Anthology Cover Reveal

I was going to put the cover to the upcoming anthology My Favorite Story at the end of the post. Tease you about it for awhile. But it’s too exciting and good a cover to do that, so… enjoy. 

More details are coming soon. Really soon. This will be an amazing anthology of stories from some of the Project Entertainment Network authors we are honored to have as hosts of some of the best podcasts you will ever hear. 

Special thanks to Thomas O’Briant for the cover design and the authors who’ve given not only their favorite story but the why behind it being their favorite.

As an author, what is your version of making a living off of your writing? 

Is it a goal to be a full-time author or is it just a part of your work? 

Could you quit your job right now and write full-time? Could you do it mentally?

The Mando Method Podcast co-hosts Armand Rosamilia and Chuck Buda tell their own stories, ramble about things that have nothing to do with the topic, and generally kill an hour instead of writing and furthering their own careers.

Poor Chuck Buda. 

As co-host of The Mando Method Podcast, along with fellow co-host Armand Rosamilia, Chuck has plenty of resources at his fingertips. New ways of thinking about writing and working. Lots of inspiration from listeners and talking shop about the craft. 

But he’s been in a funk lately. Listen in as an author does what all authors do… complains and/or whines about not being able to write.
